Formed in 2002, Diverse Harmony was one of the nation's first gay-straight youth alliance to express themselves through the musical arts. It is an organization to help end bullying and harassment of LGBTQS youth while promoting tolerance and acceptance in an artistic, educational atmosphere.
Our professionally trained Artistic Director, Accompanist, Business Manager, and Board members provide a consistent, safe and inviting space for youth to receive professional vocal instruction and an opportunity for them to build self-confidence and develop interpersonal skills. Diverse Harmony ensures youth who may face daily discrimination have a safe place to develop their vocal skills and create lasting friendships.
The mission of Diverse Harmony, a Queer-Straight Alliance Youth Chorus, is to create a safe, affirming environment where everyone is accepted for who they are. We use our passion and the power of music to inspire and celebrate differences in our homes and community. We invite all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and straight (LGBTQS) youth ages 13-22 to participate in a choral community, open to all vocal skill level.
Our guiding values are: Musical Excellence, Inclusiveness, Courage, Respect, Safety and Support for Being True Self, Self Development and Responsibility, and Community Service.
